Flint was the nickname of Eli Fugate, b. 1795 in Russell Co. VA. His wife was SARAH Noble, not "Mary" - their marriage is recorded in Clay Co. KY (which later formed Perry Co.): 12 Feb 1815.
I don't necessarily have a complete list of his children, but one of them was the Mary, b.1817, who married Moses Mays.
Can you tell me who Martha married, or something about her, because I don't have her name on my list of Eli's children. If she really was his daughter, I need to add her to my records.
"Patsy" is the pet name for "Martha", not a different name.

Martha Fugate

Thanks for the information! Martha Fugate was born in 1837 and she married John W. Mays born 1863. They had a daughter named Nancy who married Jesse Brownloe Turner. Were Moses and John Mays brothers? Do you know who Moses' father was?

I was raised in Leslie Co. Ky. Which is between Clay and Perry Co. KY. I am interested in knowing who was the first Fugate's t settle in the Breathett, Perry or Clay co.KY. Again mary would like all children of William Fugate B 1765/66 Russell Co. Va and his son Levi Fugate B 1795 Russell Co. VA.

Thanks again mary,

Benjamin Hannah Fugate and their children - some already married, some married in Clay Co. - left Russell Co. VA about 1802 and moved to Clay Co. He was son of Martin (d.1802/3 Russell Co.). They settled on Troublesome Creek.

Jonathan Fugit, son of John Fugit of Castlewood, Russell Co. VA moved about the same time. He settled on Quicksand. Later spelled his name Fugate.

Levi, son of William of Claiborne Co., TN, moved to Perry Co. about 1829 (first appears on Tax lists in 1830).

William Fugate, b. ca 1760/1, married (1) Jane ___. They lived first on moccasin Creek, Russell Co., then moved to Lee Co. VA where they were living in July of 1797 when they sold their Moc. Creek land. This is the only record of Jane as his wife. William owned land on the border between Lee Co. VA and Claiborne Co. TN - some in each county. Before he died in 1808, he had moved back to Russell Co. VA, and his brother Zachariah administered his estate. Apparently the minor children lived with Zachariah through 1820 as there were extra people in Zachariah's household who fit their ages. The children of this marriage that I have identified were:
1) Martin, b. ca 1789, m. Mariah ___. they moved to Laurel Co. KY about 1830, then to Lincoln Co.; Martin died 2 Dec 1855 in Rockcastle Co. KY. This is my husband's ancestor.
2) Levi, b. ca1795 in Russell Co. VA. He fought in the War of 1812, enlisting from Russell Co., but is recorded after that in Claiborne Co. TN with his brother Martin.
3) William, b. 2 Nov 1799. He married Nancy Riley and stayed in Claiborne Co., where he became a prominant landowner and left many descendants.
4) Zachariah, b. ca1803/4; married Martha Davenport and moved to Rhea Co. TN where his descendants still live.
5) Julia, b. ca1805, m. John Gollihon and stayed in the TN/Lee Co. area. There is a death record for Julia in 1865 in Lee Co. that states that her parents were William Fugate and Sarah Stevens. That is the only other record of a wife for William, and could mean that Jane died and he married again, or that his wife was named Sarah Jane. I have not been able to find a Stevens family in any of the tax lists or other records available for the area where William lived, but there are very few records surviving.

Obviously there is room for more children in this family. They probably were either daughters who left no records, or sons who died young and unmarried.

Send me your e-mail address and I will provide more complete information.

Some correct, some not (ie - no Jehiel son of Wm. - he was son of Martin in our line). But WHAT ARE YOUR SOURCES? Without that info I can hardly comment.
